What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Students should have completed Chinese 2 lower, or studied Chinese for approximately 2 years recently or have developed an equivalent competence in the language.

For further details of the specific foreign language skills required for this level, please see the languages self-assessment chart, using the link at the top of this page. You can also find the chart at the start of the languages section in our course guide. You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and read course documents in English and be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g using money, telling the time, etc). It would also be useful if you had some knowledge of intermediate grammar terminology.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Our courses are characterised by spoken interaction and communication. Typical activities include pair work, group work, role plays and games. A range of resources will be used to support your learning including presentations, hand-outs, and audio-visual material.
Homework is highly recommended to consolidate learning.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

This course is based on the tutor’s own material. Your tutor might recommend a reference book for your own self-study.
